Titans draft Western Michigan receiver Davis with No. 5 pick

Which Tennessee Titans players were hurt by the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Titans moved all over the draft previous year as new GM Jon Robinson looked to acquire as many draft picks as possible to create a contender in the mid-South. Jackson scored two touchdowns last season playing wide receiver.

On November 25, 2016, Davis became the NCAA's all-time leader in receiving yards with 5,278, passing Nevada's Trevor Insley. "They're all football. They like it". The Eagles may very well have their choice at No. 14 if they so choose to go with a playmaker in the first round.

The Titans got a breakout season previous year from Rishard Matthews but need another wide receiver after Kendall Wright signed with Chicago as a free agent.

The fit is good for Davis for more than the money, however.

He was still the first tight end off the board and Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston gets a big new target at 6-foot-6, 255 pounds.

Davis and Jackson first met at the NFL Combine, but they followed each other on Twitter even before that meeting in Indianapolis. In fairness to her, she said all nice things about her little brother-that he worked so hard, and that deserved his big payday, and that she was proud of him. "It's excitement. It is all about making this team better, and these guys are going to come in and they are going to compete and that is all you can really as for".

For Chicago, it must be hoping Rajon Rondo will be ready to play and can make a difference in the game, keeping its season alive. He finished with 10 points in the period, though that didn't stop the others from trying to create even more offensive balance.

"Just to be mentioned in the same sentence as Randy Moss is, it's all a blessing", Davis said Wednesday. "One of my favorite quotes is from Walter Payton, and that's 'Never die easy.' I try to live that out wholeheartedly".

"I feel like I've got something to prove".

Also in the first round, Tennessee chose Adoree' Jackson with the 18th pick, a cornerback from USC. Whether people were concerned about his ankle issues or dropped pass problems, there were not many that thought the Tennessee Titans would draft him quite as high as they have. I think it was a relatively easy decision I should say.

It would be foolish to dismiss a wide receiver prospect just because he played at a less prominent college program.

Mularkey said Jackson's versatility brings "added value" and could tempt the Titans to use him on offense occasionally.

The versatile Jackson not only solves the Titans' need for another starting cornerback to pair with free-agent pickup Logan Ryan, but also has dynamic ability as a return man, something the Titans were lacking a year ago.

Last season saw Davis' new squad finish 9-7. That included trading out of the top spot a year ago to earn a bounty from the Rams, and trading back up to take tackle Jack Conklin. The Titans do have two third-round selections.
